Big Bill - Big Ben

    What Nadia wants to hear are the chimes of big Bill, but that is a mistake, "big Ben," No.6 corrects her, and Nadia will never call him anything else. "Goodnight Nadia" "Goodnight big Ben." "Big Bill" Number 6 corrects her again.
   My wife is of the opinion that Patrick McGoohan would rather enjoy being called "Big Bill!" But I have always seen this as perhaps an unintended reference to Bill and Ben the flowerpot men!
   But then again, I might very well have been led up the garden path, indeed I might very well be in the wrong garden altogether!
